House & Grounds

In 1987, the Wauwatosa Historical Society purchased a stately Victorian house, a coach house, and 1.5 acres of gardens and grounds. The Kneeland-Walker House is now being used for various educational programs, preservation work, archival storage, artifact displays, and community events. This treasure stands as one of Wauwatosa's greatest community assets.

The Little Red Store

The Little Red Store is part of Wauwatosa's earliest history as the oldest remaining post office in Milwaukee County. This building has also served throughout the years as a railroad station, general store, library, a meeting place for political groups, harness shop, grocery, and plumbing shop.

Restored by the Wauwatosa Historical Society, it has been available for event rentals since 2009.
